"Round the Lake" is the 
first School-wide event 
of the year. It is a way 
of cementing relations 
between all students in 
a House, both Junior 
and Senior. The event 
features a 22km race 
around Shawnigan 
Lake. Each student is re- 
sponsible for a section 
of the race which he or 
she will run for their 
House. The competition 
counts for House points 
in the competition for 
the Lonsdale's Cup and 
the Hyde-Lay Trophy. 
Duxbury won the boys' 
race and School/Ren- 
frew took girls' honours. 
The staff team tried hard 
but, in the main, they 
were just too old and 
feeble — despite having 
some Staff children to 
help them out!

Every three years, Shawnigan Lake 
School puts on the much-loved In- 
ternational Week. Students and Staff 
alike participate in the many activi- 
ties, as well as helping to organize 
them. The purpose of this week is to 
celebrate our many differences. 
There are diverse cultures, tradi- 
tions, and ideas in the mosaic of 
Shawnigan Lake School. Through- 
out the week these are shared, un- 
derstood, and enjoyed by each mem- 
ber of the Shawnigan community 
through workshops, chapel services, 
and internatioanl foods. This year we 
also had an inspirational speech by 
the Olympian gold medalist Daniel 
Igali. The entire week was greatly 
enjoyed and the memories will be 
cherished by all.

work. With the rest of our lives 
ahead of us, the world is ours to 
explore. Good luck, on whichever

The student body at Shawnigan has grown considerably since I was in Grade 8, not only in numbers, but 
also in quality and character. In that time, Duxbury House was built and this brought us to a total of nine 
Houses, five for boys and four for girls. I have never been to a school with such a mix of students. Many live 
halfway round the world but we also have day students who live within walking distance. School spirit and 
whole-hearted dedication separates our students from those of many other schools, and contrary to popular 
outside belief we are not tennis-jacket-swinging preppies who drink tea and tell lame jokes! We try to 
educate students academically, athletically and in the arts, providing a very diverse and well-rounded 
education system. Even more important, I believe, are the social skills that young people learn while 
attending Shawnigan. Many students, for example, who were very shy have opened up and publicly displayed 
incredible talents. When you are constantly around four hundred peers it is necessary to develop many 
social skills. Without the students there would be no Shawnigan Lake School and without the School many 
of the students would not be what they are today. To those who are continuing here, take advantage of what 
Shawnigan has to offer and work hard — you will achieve your goals. For those who are leaving, good 
luck. I am sure that Shawnigan has prepared you well.

Sport at Shawnigan is a way of life — many would say that it is THE way of life! 
Nobody can remain unaffected by its pervasive hold on our community. If you 
were not an athlete before you came here then you soon found that you had to 
become one. In a modern world it is essential that everybody has some athletic 
interest whether it be a rugged team sport or taking the first steps as an individual 
in a martial art. Whatever your sporting inclinations, Shawnigan provides for 
them. In our tight-knit community athletics is much, much more than a vehicle 
for keeping fit or using up aggressive energy — it is a way of coming together as 
a unit and cultivating a sense of pride in our school. Yes, we are a school and 
schools are primarily seats of learning, not hot-beds of athleticism, but we should 
always remember that mens sana in corpore sano (look it up) is much more a 
truism than a cliche. 



The Colt A boys started the season with a lot of stu- 
dents who were new to the game of rugby. Unfortu- 
nately we lost our first two games against SMUS and 
St. George's; however, the Colts worked their way up 
to the Mid-Islands and celebrated the moment of be- 
ing the champions. Then we moved on to compete in 
the Islands. We faced Oak Bay for our first game of 
the tournament. We lost to them by one conversion 
and it became the obstacle on our way to the top. We 
won the rest of our games and put ourselves in fourth 
place. The Colt Aboys had a good season and thanks 
to our coaches, Mr. Patel and Mr. Felix

The Colt B's had a superb season. We opened it on a 
good note, going undefeated at the ISA tournament at St. 
George's and taking first place. We continued to post vic- 
tory after victory for the remainder of the season, punc- 
tuated by a decisive win over Brentwood on our home 
field despite being a man down. Unfortunately our un- 
beaten season was ended by a defeat at Brentwood; how- 
ever, we managed to pull out a sweet win in the final 
grudge match against them. Our season would never have 
been the same without the leadership of our captain 
Walker Maine. Congratulations to him. Also congratula- 
tions to Matt Evens for managing to play nearly 20 min- 
utes at Brentwood before being ejected!

Imagine staring into the eyes of 20 or so boys who 
are looking dismally back at you: the prospect of play- 
ing rugby is not an appealing one. Well, that was what 
I was facing from day one! Changes were needed: a 
bit of enthusiasm was needed: a bit of "Fun" was 
needed! No longer was it the Colt "C" team: we be- 
came the grade 10 invitational elite XV. It worked! 
The results became irrelevant: focus was on enjoy- 
ment. The boys were a joy to coach and by the end of 
the season, we had a couple of nail-biting, not to 
mention thrilling, games against Brentwood. Both 
were lost 25-27 but as I told the boys: it is not the 
winning, it is the taking part. Well done to all the 
boys, It's been a pleasure!

The Junior Colts season is one that will be treasured 
and remembered by every player on the team. A ten- 
a-side game started the season. The opposing team 
was St. George's. Being thrashed last year 70-0 and 
25-0, we wanted to prove that we were a worthy ri- 
val. After ending a tight first half at 7-5 for 
Shawnigan, we played our hearts out, running in two 
more tries. At the sound of the whistle, we tossed 
our scrum-caps into the air and collapsed on our knees 
from our hard-working game that resulted in a long- 
awaited Shawnigan Junior Colt victory over St. 
George's. We would like to thank our coaches Mr. 
Linn and Mr. Hall for leading us to this victorious 
Junior Colt season.

It's Good! Jason converts the 

The Grade 8 rugby team started out the season with 
not much experience . They caught on to most of 
the fundamental skills by their first match against 
Ladysmith. This match was a good experience be- 
cause it helped us for the up-coming tournament. 
Alghough we didn't win any of our games, the team 
gave it their all. The highlight most definitely was 
defeating our rival school, Brentwood. This game 
gave the team the spark it needed for the Mid-Is- 
lands' competition. In the end, we didn't perform as 
successfully as we had hoped but everyone did their 
best and that's what counts.

This was definitely the strongest junior team in 
the history of girls' field hockey at Shawnigan. The 
strength lay in the abundance of athletic ability and 
excellent team spirit under the captaining of Erin 
and Kate Tweedie. Highlights of the season were 
the I.S.A. and Mid- Island Tournaments where we 
were very successful. Shawnigan was the only 
school in the Cowichan Valley who did not lose to 
Mid-Island Champions Mt. Prevost. We tied them 
during the season and at the tournament. This ex- 
cellent Junior group should provide the foundation 
for a strong First XI in the next couple of years.

This year's team was made up of all student from 
Grades 8 to 10 who had never played field 
hockey before. The challenge lay ahead of us, 
as other teams were definitely not new to the 
game. The girls had great attitues, did not get 
discouraged, and constantly put forth their best 
efforts. Their skills and game sense improved 
remarkably throughout the season. I am very 
proud of these girls, and they should be proud 
of their acomplishments.

Volleyball this season for the "A" team was quite a suc- 
cessful one. Not only was there hard work and determi- 
nation, but there was also the fun and laughter added by 
each member including Ike and Mr. "D". Memorable mo- 
ments include car rides in the suburban, talking about Mr. 
"D"'s childhood sweethearts (coat on "her" hook),or the 
time Jess Jackson ran into the bleachers at SMU. We can 
never forget the time when Ike showed more than enough 
affection towards me. But all in all, on behalf of the girls, 
we'd like to thank Mr. Dorland for the best season, I'm 
sure any of us have played! To Kajsa, Colleen and Jenna

year. Most girls started this season with very little playing 
experience but at the end of the year, the players showed 
great improvement botfci in skills and attitudes. The team

nine league games in only seven weeks. Exhaustion, no! 
Exhilaration, yes! The Seniors, led by their captain, 
Courtenay Althouse, completed another successful sea- 
son, finishing third on Vancouver Island. It has been an 
immense privilege to coach such a fine group of athletes, 
such a fine group of women. This group impressed me 
with their determination to finish that which they had 
started. Ladies, this ability will always serve you well in 
life, and coupled with courage and confidence in your abili- 
ties, you will find you can accomplish all that you set out to 
do. I will miss you all very much. Thank you for all the 
fond memories.

great win 

over St. 

The Senior girls experienced many highlights this year. In 
the first tournament at Malaspina College we found it diffi- 
cult to get into a rhythm, but Iritana Houston and Missy 
Charleson ably led the team. We also had solid play from 
Christine Yole. Then it was the I.S.A Championships at 
Brentwood Col lege. This was a different story. We were 
thrilled to reach the final after an exciting and hard-fought 
semifinal against St. Margaret's and there met a very strong 
and consistent York House team.Unfortunately, they saved 
their best volleyball for that game and so we placed sec- 
ond. Iritana and Lisa Tsai were selected to the All-Star 
team. After Thanksgiving we played in a tournament at 
Victoria High before crossing the water to UBC which 
hosted a high-calibre tournament with teams from Alberta 
and Manitoba. Although we did not win matches, we learned 
to play against very good teams including White Rock Chris- 
tian — a perennial powerhouse in the Single 'A' Division.

In the meantime, we continued to play well at the league 
level, winning all of our games. Then it was the Island 'A' 
Championships. Nine teams arrived at Lake Cowichan Sec- 
ondary School for the weekend. The highlight was our play 
against Cedar Secondary and Duncan Christian School on 
the Friday. Alas, we were not so fortunate on the Saturday 
and couldn't get past Ecole Brodeur and Pacific Christian. 
This left us tied for 3rd in the Championships based on 
matches won. We were proud that Missy Charleson was 
named to the All-Star team. 

In closing, I thank all the players for their commitment to 
the program and their efforts and sacrifices during this sea- 
son; we learned many valuable lessons and enjoyed many

Sailing the Ocean Blue... 

This fall term, Sailing was blessed with warm, sunny 
afternoons well into the middle of November. There 
were several stormy days, of course, but our Com- 
modore, Mr. Sarsfield, put these to excellent use for 
our classroom instruction. (By the way, what is a 
camber?!) We spent our sailing time refining race 
tactics and practicing perilous starts and rounding 
pressing marks. Our green crews had ample oppor- 
tunity to master the essentials - learn the ropes, so to 
speak (although, in sailing, there are no ropes; only 
lines) - under the grueling guidance of our seasoned 
veterans in the fleet of Pirates. All in all, I'd say the 
season proved productive and fun.

The fall of 2000 had record-high sunlight and 
record-low rainfall. We experienced both balmy 
and chilly days of paddling, saw our fair share of 
marine life, and enjoyed some great meals. We all 
had a taste of that special camaraderie that comes 
from sharing beautiful places, field tents and crack- 
ling camp fires. Memories include night commando 
games, sparkling phosphorescence, gargantua sea 
lions, sweat lodges, and three bulbs of garlic in the 
pasta sauce. Special thanks to Ms. Favor for join- 
ing us on two of our trips, and being so generous of 
her time, expertise and enthusiasm.

The Soccer XI had a very strong year, highlighted with 
the team's first win in two seasons. Despite a difficult 
starting schedule, we held our own against much tougher 
and experienced squads like Gulf Islands and Brentwood. 
Next, the team travelled to Vancouver for an ISA tourna- 
ment. We were in the "Island pool" which was the domi- 
nating force in the tournament. We placed third in our 
section and the winner went on to win the competion. Our 
skills were improving and it all came together for our next 
game, at home, against John Barsby. After a strong start 
the score was 2-0 for us, and even though we managed to 
score an own goal (J.C.) we still came out on top 5-2. The 
team would like to thank Mr. Williams and Mr. Swiednicki 
for a productive and enjoyable season.

The Senior Boys' Cross Country team had another 
successful season. The team consisted of over 
twenty runners most of whom competed in 5 league 
races, the Island Championships and the Provincial 
Championships. Ben Wills was this year's captain 
and consistently ranked in the top 5 runners in the 
league and top 10 on the island. Other outstanding 
races this season came from James Carson, Marcus 
Purtzki, Harvey Wallace, Mike Smith, Blake Bowell 
and James Tinker. For the second year in a row the 
team placed second on the island and qualified for 
the B.C. Championships

Curling is a new sport to Shawnigan and we are all 
beginners. We started the year with no idea what we 
were doing but have caught on quickly. Mr. Ouellette 
is a great coach and always has good advice. At the 
beginning of February, we started a tournament con- 
sisting of our four teams that will end in March with 
playoffs. We are a small group of about 16 that al- 
ways gets along, especially with Michael Bhatti's 
jokes. We have lost a few people to the Wilberforce 
but are still holding together quite well ! On behalf of 
the Curling team, I would like to thank Mr. Ouellette 
for introducing us to the sport of Curling.

"A mind stretched by a new experience can never 
return to its former shape." The twelve members of 
the SAR program had a busy term. They came to- 
gether as a team, and shared a variety of cold, wet, 
and challenging experiences. There were some big 
time commitments to wilderness first aid and 
swiftwater rescue training, but the payoffs were worth 
it as everyone's knowledge, skills and confidence 
grew tremendously. Our most memorable shared 
experience would have to be swimming the big hole 
at the foot of Skutz Falls (again and again and again 
and again....). To Matt, Alanna, Blake, Nick, Royce,

The swimming program, which was revived this year, 
has been a great success. More than 80 students, 
Junior and Senior, came into the program with a wide 
range of experiences, interests, needs and abilities. 
Accommodating this diversity was not always easy 
but an individualized approach to instruction made 
it possible. Some developed basic swimming skills 
and received a student award, while others obtained 
their Bronze Medallion, which involved rescue and 
fitness. A Few decided to meet the stiff challenge of 
training for a Bronze Cross. Finally, a small group 
opted to face the difficult task of the National Life 
Saving Certificate and obtained their official certifi- 
cation. Congratulations to all!

Over two terms in swimming, I have learned much more than 
I have learned in any other sport. Joining swimming simply to 
improve my strokes and fitness, I was surprised when our in- 
structor, Lonnie, started teaching rescuing skills. In Bronze 
Medallion, we began with simple rescues and gradually moved 
on to more difficult situations. By the time we did Bronze Cross 
in the second term, rescue and recusitation techniques came 
naturally, we could easily approach victims with our aids, lift 
them out of the water, do rescue breathing and CPR. Regular 
timed swims kept us physically fit. We became certified life- 
savers when we passed the Bronze Cross. I am now taking a 
national lifeguarding course, which comes with new compli- 
cations and challenges. It is a tremendously demanding course, 
but the fact that I am capable of maybe saving someone's life 
one day motivates me.

Squash continues to be a popular choice as a sport for 
the Winter Term. This year was no exception and it is 
unfortunate that the programme had to turn away players 
due to the fact that we only have two courts. The Pacific 
Northwest Junior Championships in Victoria attracted 250 
players from Western Canada and the U.S.A. Shawnigan 
entered a contingent of 30, all of whom played well and 
gained valuable experience. In particular, Caleb Lilley, 
Natalie Hill and Elaine Springgay achieved notable re- 
sults in their events. It was encouraging to note the number 
of talented juniors playing this season as they will ensure 
the continued success of the programme.

What can I say about the the Senior Boys Basketball 
team? First of all I would like to thank Mr. Austin 
for a season of basketball that I shall never forget. 
Secondly I would like to thank the boys for a season 
of laughter after the games. A speacial thanks goes 
out to Richard Seok who cheered the team up when 
it was needed, Noah Mills, for his golden three-point 
hand, and to Andrew Buchanan for his incredible 
drives to the basket. Thirdly a special thanks to the 
school for their great support when we played in the 
Stag Classic. Good luck to next year's senior boys. 
You will have a very successful season next year.

Whether getting off the bus or walking out of the gym, all the girls left with 
sweat on their brows and a look on their faces expressing their efforts in 
the recent game. The season was memorable by both the games and 
coaches, ( thanks Mr. Noble and Miss. Boyce). The highlights of our 
season came mostly from the girls and the memories made on and off the 
court. The one thing that set Shawnigan apart was our impressive way of 
incorporating rugby shills into each game! We came out of a few games 
lacking numbers on the score clock but certainly made up for it in effort. 
As the season progressed so did our game and our ability to avoid "un- 
necessary" contact. Our final game, which was the qualifier for the Is- 
lands, was a tough battle and unfortunately we didn't come out on top. 
Trailing by only nine points we still, however, felt like winners as our sea- 
son ended. Thanks girls and good luck next year to Lisa, Jen and Alia.

When considering the actual game of basketball, our Jun- 
ior girls' team had a difficult task ahead of them; learn 
the game well enough to be played at a competitive level. 
A difficult task indeed, when you consider the range of 
skills that each player had brought with them into the 
court. The girls practiced hard, and rose to be ranked in 
the 'middle of the pack' in our league. When we took our 

game on the road well, that is a whole other 

story.... burp! excuse me., red, pink, eggs...Carly! 
What was impressive about this year's team was; their 
ability to not be intimidated by other teams much better 
than them, their willingness to work hard and focus on 
their goals, and the commitment to improving their rela- 
tionship amongst their teammates. Ms. Favor would like

The Midget Girls have had an excellent season. In 
December, with only a single practice to our credit, 
we played four game and lost each of them. With time 
and hard work, however, we bolstered our defensive 
skills, improved our shooting, and developed our sense 
of teamwork. This led to a string of victories after 
Christmas. Our post-holiday record of 8 wins and 2 
losses speaks volumes for the efforts of these girls. In 
the Mid-Island tournament, we won two of our three 
games and placed third, narrowly missing the final 
after a 4-point loss to a team that had previously beaten 
us by 30. I am proud of the stellar efforts of these 
girls, a number of whom will have a powerful impact 
on the quality of Shawnigan basketball as they ad- 
vance in the programme. — Mr. J. Connolly

The Hockey team has had a great season. Led by the 
wonderful coaching staff of Mr. Fraser and Mr. Tang, 
we got off to an average start losing to Brentwood in 
the opener 9-2. Our first win of the season came against 
a tough Kelsey team. The game was won 5-2, and was 
the first win in two seasons for the SLS team. We played 
in one more game and had many tough practices filled 
with lots of skating, preparing us for the feature game 
against our arch-rivals from Brentwood. The game was 
extremely hard-hitting and fast-paced. The final score 
was Brentwood 5 Shawnigan 2. Although it sounds 
like a blowout, the score does not at all reflect the ef- 
fort the team put into the game. The season was great 
fun and I know that we are all still wondering, "When 
will Patty score a goal?"

First term rowing can be summarised as a period of fun, 
hard work, adventure and fabulous conditions. Training 
included regular trips to the end of the lake with a focus 
on building a solid fitness base. The competitive aspect 
of the program was limited to one trip south of the 
border, where we competed in two regattas with suc- 
cess, the Frostbite on Green Lake and the Head of the 
Lake on Lake Union. Many thanks to the Niemi family 
for hosting the "whole gang". To complete the story of 
the fall term of rowing, one would have to mention the 
fabulous conditions we enjoyed, from morror-like water 
and many more dry than wet days, to spectacular 
sunsets and clear, crisp aftrenoons. Thank you to the fall 
term coaching staff for excellent service and commitment 
to the program. — Mrs. A. Stapff

The winter term was very successful for the twenty-two 
athletes from Grades 8- 1 in the Junior Girls rowing pro- 
gram. During this period, athletes trained in a variety of 
rowing shells from singles to eights. While the majority of 
time was spent on the lake, some of our practice time 
found the girls honing their technique indoors on the row- 
ing machines (ergs) and in the rowing tanks. The primary 
focus was to improve technique, develop camaraderie, 
create an endurance base and above all have fun. Unfor- 
tunately, our first two races, the Head of Shawnigan Lake 
and the Head of Mill Bay, were cancelled due to snow. 
The winter term culminated at the Elk Lake Spring Re- 
gatta hosted in Victoria.

There are two words to describe Rugby Skills: 
"Patelbur Force". It was not an uncommon sight for 
us to see the Wilber Force finishing up while we were 
still on the stairs or ending a run. At the beginning 
of the term, we all wrote down our goals so we each 
had something to work towards before we started the 
rugby season. Our days consisted of 7k warm-up 
runs, video and strategy sessions, aerobics, weights 
and field sessions. As well, we had numerous beep, 
bench-press and leg-press tests to monitor our im- 
provement. A big thanks to Mr. Patel who made sure 
we were able to practise even if we had doctors' notes 
or if there was 5 feet of snow on the fields.

The three pillars of a Shawnigan education are often described as the three A s 
— academics, athletics, arts. The Fine Art program can be regarded by some as 
the third in importance, as well as the third on the list because it does not have 
the high profile of sports nor the all-pervasivness of classes. It would be a great 
mistake to think so. Although both sports and fine arts must bow to the supremacy 
of academics at a school like ours, the Fine Art program is alive, well and flexing 
its muscles. From the rarely-noticed yearbook group to the grand spectacular of 
the musical, from traditional carving and potting to the latest in computer 
graphics, from streamkeeping to outreach and many, many other arts and services 
in between, arts groups make Shawnigan a busy place after classes on Mondays, 
Wednesdays and Fridays. The following pages can offer just a hint of what goes 






An almost entirely new Yearbook staffproved a challenge at the beginning, but 
we have all gained a new knowledge and come together to work smoothly as a 
team to produce the yearbook. We believe Shawnigan Lake School is a world unto 
itself, which is why we chose the theme. We took bits of our world throughout the year, 
and with pictures, page layouts and write-ups, we gave it back on our computed pages. 
During the year, our efforts were rewarded with the occasional pizza party, which kept us moti- 
vated. We would like to say a special thank you to Mr. Hatch who has helped us out on several 
occasions by supplying us with photos. Thanks to the hard work and dedication of Mr. and Mrs. Leary, 
and the skills and determination of the staff, the yearbook was made possible.

The Martial Arts program has enjoyed another strong year at Shawnigan. It has 
followed the traditional philosophy of instruction through kata and basic training. Its 
main focus has been to teach students to defend themselves in real self-defense situa- 
tions. Shorinjiryu karate and jujutsu training have provided the basis for the instruction. 
The program has again been very fortunate to have Mr. Doug Mortley lead all the classes. He 
is the senior ranking instructor in the Westren Canadian Butoko-kai Martial Arts organization. 
Thestudents who have participated in the program have found it to be challenging and difficult but 
tremendously rewarding. We all hope that it continues to find a strong place in the school.

While Musical drama is the big focus for the year, an equally important dramatic 
group works to produce its own performance. A small cast of dedicated students 
meets in the Shaw Centre each Fine Art day to practise their lines, hone their acting 
skills, and prepare for the show. This year, they chose to stage "Steel Magnolias", a 
challenging play but one well suited to the talented all-female group. Under the direction of 
Ms. Phaedra Fairwell, the girls put on a superb performance which was extremely well-received 
by all who had the pleasure to attend. We hope that the group gained as much pleasure and satisfaction 
from their involvement as we had from watching. We look forward to more of their efforts in the future

The Architectural Drafting and Design Program is a new, computer-centered 
version of a course that was previously taught at Shawnigan for many years. The 
^*^. / first year has been somewhat experimental in content, the main focus being familiar- 
4^£ / ity and comfort with the Vectorworks program. All students have completed 2-D and 3- 
J^y / D house drawings, spreadsheets, perspectives, flybyes and 3-D animated walk-throughs of 
/ ^^ / their designs. Towards the end of the year we purchased Artlantis, a marvelous artistic render- 
\J / ing tool that has allowed an even greater 3-D option. As well as drafting skills, students have 
learned about house construction technique and vocabulary through trips to the Headmaster's new 
home as it was being built. We have had a keen, hardworking, talented group.

I'm Mr. Nelson, replacing Mr. Smith this year in woodworking fine art, and what a 

first it has been! These kids want to be here making sawdust (now if I could only get 

them to clean it up) and they're turning some great ideas into terrific projects; from gifts 

for Mom to furniture for their room (or useless things which I regret letting them make). 

These students have really put their roots down in the shop and personality is coming out of the 

woodwork. They're aTREEt to instruct when they don't go against the grain and act like saplings, 

in which case I'd BARK at them. I hope they will Branch out and onto a project like you never SAW 

I hope to see some of them back next year. Thanks to Mr. Rolston and Mr. Smith for helping to make it an 

easier start.

What fun! Students worked on projects from painting, col-

mache, jewellery making, sun catchers and clay work. Some won- 
derful gifts were made for friends and family. Students explored new 
and exciting techniques without the constraints of class projects. Many 
developed new skills and problem-solving techniques in a relaxed, and yet 

exciting studio setting. „ TT

The choir meets outside the regular academic and extracurricular sched- 
ule. We work on a variety of musical literature and perform regularly at 
Festivals and at School. Outside events include the Comox Valley Festival, the 
Cowichan Valley Festival and the West Coast Choral Festival in Victoria. At 
home the choir plays an important role in the Chapel, particularly for the Christmas 
Carol Service in December. While the ability to sing is a great asset, a sense of enthusi 
asm and commitment is far more valuable. The choir had a great year with outstanding 
attendance. I would like to thank all the members and particularly thank Ms. Mackenzie for 
all her hard work and enthusiasm. _ A GueuUUe

This year the Dance program was an exciting experience for everybody wh 
part. The dance teachers thoroughly enjoyed working with such an enthusiasl 
motivated bunch. Compared to earlier years we spiced up our program by usin^ 
V^ / hip-hop and an edgier style. With tunes from Britney Spears, Pink, Mariah Carey, Je 
fcjy / Lopez and other artists this has been one of the best dance years ever. The girls gaine 

formance experience by entering the Cowichan Music Festival. This proved to be very su 
ful. The dancers also showed off their moves to the rest of the school at the Fine Arts concert 
was not only entertaining but a fun night for all involved. I'd like to thank Jodi and Reija for maki 
year memorable and having so much patience when we weren't the easy group to work with. I wish 
girls luck in their future years. I know that Dance will continue to make a large and valuable impress 
Shawnigan life. —Leanne MacLean

The group started the year off with an eye-opening trip to Suburbia 
Studios in Victoria to see some cutting-edge technology. Bruce, Darcy and Di 
eter busied themselves obtaining some valuable career advice! The returning Sen 
iors produced their "Eye of the Artist" display, inspired solely by each student studying 
his/her own reflection in a pocket mirror. Richard, however, still prefers to start with a scan 
or two. He had more fun with the calendar assignment. The Juniors practised their skills on the 
"Build-an-animal" project and then began exploring advanced technique in a "Dreamscape" as- 
signment. In February, all the students had a behind-the-scenes look at how a digital file is printed 
This Spring, some of the Seniors went on to explore Web design projects while others assisted in 
creating imagery for various School events and plays. Look out, as we boss those pixels around!

The debating group is small but mighty! In a few short weeks students com- 
peted in the Newman-Fisa where David Dakin and Robert Rich tied for first over 
all. At the International Independent Schools' Public Speaking Tournament the team 
of Alia Karmali, David Dakin and Robert Rich placed 2 1 st out of 49 schools from around 
the world. Everyone in debating helped to host the Western Debate Seminar where the best 
provincial debaters from Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia competed 
over four days. Kristen Brewer, Jeremy Thorn and Jay de Montmorency organized the events 
while Alia Karmali, David Dakin, Robert Rich, David Alison, Ben Sampson and Whitney Mclnnis 
debated. Other members ran the rooms as Speakers and did an outstanding job.

The Environment Activity, under the direction of Mr. Noble and Mrs. 
Dalrymple, worked on a number of projects this year. Shawnigan Creek and Ma- 
son's beach were the focus as the group joined the community and government to 
protect and clean these resources. Many members in the activity worked towards attain- 
ing stream-keeper's certification. Other work included hatchery management, reforestation 
of a clearcut on the school property and a fish trap survey on the Lake. The group has attended 
lectures with the Cowichan Valley Naturalists and had a field trip to Tofino in April. This activity 
has enjoyed bringing the message of the importance of recycling to the school and has been instru- 
mental in the efficient running of the recycling program. Thank you for a wonderful year.

The Instrumental Music Program has had a very good year. Both 

the Junior and Senior groups are very strong. The Senior Combo 

performed several times in the first term, at International Week and at 

New Parents' Day. They participated in several Festivals during the second 

half of the year; for example, the Lionel Hanpton Jazz Festival in Idaho,the 

/ West Coast Jazz Festival, and Musicfest Canada which took place in Ottawa. The 

Junior Combo had its first performance at Ski Week and also competed at the West 

Coast Jazz Festival in April.

This year the Library consisted of only bright people: Anton Lecky, David 

Howson, Jeff Morton, Camille Shieh, Tyler Lunn, Jimmy Jung, Tyron Chaytors, 

and Gianni Landisio. Though we were few in numbers, it has been a great year. ^\^%^ 

We've taken Field trips to Duncan and Mill Bay to learn about an impossible system \. tJ& 

called "The Dewey System". Library is more of a service fine art. We generally put away ^v V/ 

books, log in new ones and do a lot of laminating — well, at least until the laminator broke >. ^^ 

down. Library is funny because we constantly find our selves re-alphebtising rows and shelves \ >f^ 

that we just finished doing last week. Also, there seems to be a never ending supply of books. For 

example, one day we had just finished re-covering a stack of books and we wereturning to leave when 

out came Mrs. Stroebel with another stack. Anyway, we kept up our good spirits and we would like to say 

thanks to Mrs. Stroebel for a great year. _.

player was Jean-Paul Duplessis who walked away with 
a fine trophy for his efforts. We sincerely hope that the 
club will continue to thrive next year.

Tiles, chess sets, mobiles, soapstone sculptures and weird con- 
structions were all part of the Sculpture Fine Art experience! Group 
projects, like the small-creature clay tiles, produced by the Juniors 
proved that anyone can make amazing and artistic pieces. The off-beat 
sense of humour found in Senior Sculpture produced some amusing and lyri- 
cal art pieces like Brendan's buggy chess board and Paige's bumble bee mobile.

bine with an eye for design to create such wonderful art products as Harvey's design 

of four rock icons ! Excellent T-Shirts have been designed by Tim Groot, Brad Johnstone

Students explored the techniques and learned the skills necessary to make some 

wonderful projects this year. The Juniors learned glass cutting quickly and no one 

needed the Band- Aids. Yoko, Whitney, Vincent, Ben, Kyle and Patrick joined the 

class in January and were soon creating their own designs. Griff, James, Patrick, Freddie 

Kelvin and Geoff were already well on their way into some interesting creations. The Seniors 

have become exceptional glass cutters. Serena likes to make 3-dimensional projects. Nathan is 

geometric by design and really likes tests. Nick likes to create his own gifts and YT finally came up 

with a lamp that he really liked! Cynthia is special. She likes everything to "look pretty". YTand 

Cynthia liked to clean up after classes too. It was a great year. Everyone had fun and learned a lot about 

glass. The Senior pizza party was again a hit!

The Photography Club has had a very busy beginning to the year. Over the summer 
major changes were done in the lab. A store room was renovated and shelves and 
storage bins installed. In the darkroom two much-needed enlargers were added. When 
registration for Photo took place in the fall the demand was far too great for the resources 
available. As a result we were very lucky to aquire the help of Mr. Hatch and an extra course 
was offered in the evenings. We now have forty-five students taking Photo: fifteen Juniors and 
thirty Seniors. The first assignment that was undertaken was the building and the use of a pinhole 
camera. This exercise allows for a good understanding of the way a camera works. Following this, 
beginning students learned how to operate their cameras, develop films and print the resulting negatives. 
Now that the club has learned some basics, our next phase will be to tackle some specific projects. They 
could include night photography, portraits, specific darkroom print manipulation skills, one or two field trips and 
a showing of students' work at the Cowichan Community Centre.

As usual, the students in textiles have been hard at work either learning the 
basics of weaving or refining their skills. The group is a talented mix of both 
Junior and Senior students. Setting up the looms is a challenge but once mastered, 
a world of creativity is opened up. Simple projects like belts and scarves are followed 
by more complicated ones such as blankets and clothing. Choice of colours and materials 
makes every creation distinct and individual. As the end-of-year Fine Art display shows, 
the wealth of talent is amazing, as are the items the students produce. Thanks are due to Mrs. 
Witt-McNie who provides the guidance and inspiration for the group.

We had a running start (literally) to Outreach this year. The school participated in 

the Terry Fox Run in September and many staff and students took part in the Run for 

the Cure in Victoria in early October. In November, the Outreach members organized a 

coat and blanket drive and also busied themselves in preparation for International Week. In 

December the group held a spare change drive as well as a toy drive with all the donations 

being given to the local food banks in time for Christmas. The group plans to raise funds for the 

Heart and Stroke Foundation and Camp Goodtimes. We are also hoping to assist in a Blood Donor 

Clinic, a local Children's Fair and host a child-minding tent at the SLS Regatta in May. As usual, all 

Outreach Students assist in the Shawnigan Lake Community via volunteering in a variety of youth programs 

such as Girl Guides, Boy Scouts, coaching sport groups and after school daycare. The new touch this year 

— a personalized birthday card (with a candy) for each SLS student ! !

Home away from home! Well, perhaps not quite. However, it is difficult 
to imagine a Shawnigan institution that generates more loyalty than 
the House where you live. Very few of us want to change residences — 
perhaps it is the fear of the unknown or perhaps we just cannot be 
bothered to train up a different House Director. It is in the House where 
the closest friendships are forged, where most tears are shed and where 
the best memories are from. It doesn 't seem to matter whether your 
House has the smartest paint or lots of bathrooms or the biggest and 
most comfortable rooms (at least that's what Dux boys and K's girls 
say) — what matters is that your House has the BEST PEOPLE.

As the year comes close to an end, 
we would say that the Raiders had 
an extremely successful year. Be- 
ing the smallest boys' House on the 
campus, we often had disadvan- 
tages competing against big houses; 
however, we still manage to blow 
Lonsdale's off. The Juniors cer- 
tainly brought a hyperactive life- 
style and buckets full of enthusi- 
asm. In Grade 8, Justin leads the 
Asian connection consisting of 
Sung, Haruki, and Jason. Next we 
have the Grade 9's... Grif and Brock 
are conquering the world on the 

computer. We then move on to the 
10's. Walker, Steve, and Geoff are 
always a laugh. We also have the 
only black kid in the school- Vince. 
We have ourselves a great bunch of 
guys, who bring lots of energy to 
the house. Then the almighty Grade 
ll's... Whether Dylan is living in 
the world of Everquest or Chris is 
chasing after his girlfriend, these 
guys bring good times to the House. 
As for the rest of the boys, they have 
their share of individuality. As a 
whole, everyone from Grade 8 to 
12 has given lots to the House in 

the ways of fun, enthusiasm and 
pride. All of this combined, has 
given us a superb year and we owe 
a great deal to all of the duty staff 
and especially to Mr. and Mrs. 
Patel. Thank you boys for a great 
year. It took us almost a month to 
write this write-up because we 
wanted to make this special, but it 
turned out to be nothing special.

these guys fit that description. 
These are the boys of Duxbury 
and although a good percentage 
of them do not wield superpow- 
ers, it is fun to look at them. This 
year Duxbury has really set a 
name for itself, having had its 
most sucessful year in all of its 
history. We couldn't have done 

it without our great House Direc- 
tor Mr. Felix and the hard duty 
work of Mr. Dorland, Mr. Smith 
and James Cumming, our Scot- 
tish import. We were also fortu- 
nate to have been joined by the 
Olsons who brought to the house 
their enthusiasm and dedication. 
Duxbury will not be the same 
next year without such excellent 
role models as Ben and Marcus. 
The house will miss the positive, 
friendly attitude of Gianni and 

the insightful, relevant com- 
ments of James Lopez. It will 
also be hard to forget, in non- 
alphabetical order: Sterling, 
Bryan, Dodge, Andrew, 
Naheed, Dave, Noah, Zac, Sven

had a great time and this house

bye and farewell.

This year the girls have created a spir- 
ited, friendly, living enviroment in 
Groves' House. As a result, they have 
demonstrated a tremendouse amount 
of pride in their house and their "sis- 
ters". Because of their compassionate 
nature, Groves' has become the best 
house on campus; hence, we were 
paired with the most enthusiastic - and 
loyal - Brother House on campus: 
Lonsdales. Thank you for your con- 
stant surprises, and thoughtful, get 
togethers. In Groves', we will always 
remember the grade 8's and their need 
for stories of "true love." The grade 
9's have managed to "clean up" their 
act in the house and for this we are 
eternally thankful. Our Grade 10 'sand 

their "air" competions have always ap- 
pealed to our senses. While the Grade 
ll's have re-defined the shoe rule to 
include themselves! This year, the 
Grade 12's were a very diverse group 
of girls who have grown not only as 
individauls but together. As a result, 
the house has benefitted from their 
easy-going and unparalled enthusi- 
asm. Had it not been for our wonder- 
ful duty staff, we would not have had 
as great a year as we have. Mrs. Carr's

purposes (not to mention, they were 
"the only thing on!") Mrs. Grass kept 
the girls in line with her new guard 
dog, while Mrs. Leary always caught 

up on her gossip; however, Ms. Smith 
and Ms. Newns both deserve special 
mention. Their devotion, support, and 
dedication will not be forgotten and it 
is with great sadness that we watch 
them go. Groves' has been fortunate 
to have them leading the house and 
their presence will be greatly missed 
next year. Thank you both for your 
constant support and we wish you all 
the best in your new endeavours next 
year! Thank you so much for being the 
girls that you are. I will never forget 
you and please know that I will miss 
you all. Adios y buen suerte mis

After three long years in Lonsdale's 
House I can say without a doubt that I 
wouldn't trade its crumbling walls for 
anything. The boys in Lonsdale's this 
year are among the most fun and spir- 
ited group I have ever met, and have 
proved time and time again that it is 
the people in it, not the house itself, 
that makes a place great. So what if 
we're a small house and can't bring in 
the big numbers in Inter-House com- 
petition. No one could ever have 
beaten us in heart. Where else do the 
juniors feel welcome in Grade 12's 
rooms or does a couch fit 10 people? 
We've had our ups and downs this year, 
but in our halls of stained green car- 

pet I've seen more laughs, victories 
and broken windows than any other. 
So here's to the grade 8's, the coolest 
and funniest kids ever. To the Grade 
9's, you guys never let me down. 
Here's to the Grade 10's, all 16 of you. 
From the quiet to the crazy ones, you 
were all great, tough as nails. I 
counted myself lucky that we got 
along. To the Grade 1 1 's, the most fun- 
loving guys in the school, you were 
always reliable and good to have 
around. I wish I could be here to see 
you next year. I know you'll make us 
proud. To the Grade 12's, one of the 
most random and best mixt of eight 

characters I can imagine. From a Ko- 
rean shoe-nazi to computer nerds, we 
had it all. Gair and Paul, I would never 
have guessed that a couple of guys 
who came to the school in Grade 1 1 
could have led the house with as much 
devotion as you have. Finally to 
"Hutch," and "Lozy," for the last two 
years you've been the heart of the 
house and have made it a wonderful 
place for us to live in. To the boys, 
good luck in the future. Remember to 
attack everything you do with passion. 
Stay proud. Cheers.

Out With The Old In With The New 

As the school year draws to a 
close, and the final tally of Inter- 
House points is announced, we 
the Lake's House boys will know, 
regardless of the the cup 
standings, what a great House 
we've got, and what a year we've 
had. It was a transitional year for 
the old boys, and a new begin- 
ning for the new. I would like to 
thank the following Grade 12's 
for the best year. Jimmy "G-block 
spare" Jung, Jim "Old Man" 
Chang, Jesse "Daishiki" 
McCallum, Harvey "Young one" 

Wallace, Alex "Gladiator" 
Chang, Mackenzie "Tree 
Hugger" Duncan, Graham "Pow- 
der" Shore, Scott "Rabid Yeti" 
McCrady, Patrick "Rhino" 
Rhinehart, and Erik "Rudy, Teen 
Wolf,etc" de la Mare. The follow- 
ing people have played an impor- 
tant role in making Lake's the 
way it is today. Pam and Lisa 
for keeping us in line, Mr. 
Connelly for riding a scooter 
around the house, Mr. Filgate for 
selling us non-stop chocolate 
bars, Mr. Hyde-lay "What's the 

scoop boys," Mr. Fun for putting 
a huge amount of effort into the 
house, and to Rob for taking on 
the role of punishing people. Mr. 
Austin, I understand it felt weird 
to come to a new environment. 
We appeciate what you have 
done for your first year as a 
House Director. The Grade 12's 
wish you and the House luck for 
the years to come.

Renfrew House, as everyone 
knows, is the smallest house on 
campus. With just twenty girls, 
we have grown very close. Our 
three energetic Grade 8's have 
made it so that there's never a 
dull or quiet moment. Our two 
Grade 9's have managed to keep 
everyone in the House laughing 
with their unique personalities. 
The seven Grade 10's keep us 
guessing what odd thing they're 
going to be up to next.The Grade 
1 l's have tried to take over the 

House a million times, but we man- 
aged to scare them into submis- 
sion. RenSchool's successes at 
Inter-House competitions have 
been incredible ( as usual) — a 
big thanks to School House! 
Thanks to Copeman's for being a 
great brother House and for tak- 
ing us out to dinner at the Keg! 
Mr. Detchon, don't let Derek take 
over too much. We love you. Mrs. 
Stroebel, thanks for your random 
stories. Mrs. Connolly, it's been 
great teaching you the rules. Don't 

get too power-happy. Mrs. 
Hyde-Lay, thanks for all the trivia 
nights and goodies. Miss 
Williams, we miss you. Ms. 
Woollven thanks for all your sup- 
port and for being an amazing 
House Director. Thanks to Lisa 
and Pam for sisterly advice and 
all the talks. A big thank you to 
all the girls (especially Missy and 
Alanna) for making this year so 
memorable. I love you all and 
wish you the best of luck next 
year. — Leanne MacLean

With fifty-plus boys living in 
one small house, sharing eight 
small showers, and four small 
couches, life can never be dull, 
and this year is no exception. 
From an extremely gritty 
Round-the-Lake Relay with 
some seriously injured guys 
running their hearts out, to our 
domination of skiing (again) 
and our surprise finish in bas- 
ketball, Ripley's is best charac- 

terized by heart this year. Not 
necessarily the most skilled at 
anything, the boys this year have 
always shown tremendous deter- 
mination in the face of large 
odds. A huge thank you is owed 
to the support of the always-help- 
ful duty staff of Mr. Cox, Mrs. 
Bell, Mrs. Martin, and Mr. 
Williams, as well as Pam and 
Lisa. Mr. Deane, with his con- 
stant vigilance and astounding 

sense of humour, is always 
there to lighten up the common 
room and keep the profanity in 
check. Mrs. Samuel's visits are 
a staple without which many of 
us would waste away. Finally, 
on behalf of all the boys in the 
house, diolch yn fawr Mr. 
Samuel for all the guidance, 
support and leadership this 
year. Cheers to the greatest 
house on campus!

Well, we are a school and much as some would like to have "Club Shaw " without 
classes, it just isn 't possible! Even if it was, most of us would probably miss our 
academic study. Academic courses not only provide us with the necessary skills 
to pursue the careers that we wish to follow, they also broaden our horizons and 
deepen our understanding of our world. At Shawnigan, we are lucky to have 
small classes and lots of facilities. We also have the benefit of a great variety of 
teachers of different ages and backgrounds who expose us to a necessary mix of 
teaching styles. Shawnigan graduates have been known to say that they didn 't 
really appreciate their teachers here until they were at University! Let us 
remember that an education is something precious and that apriviliged education 
such as ours is something to be particularly thankful for. Deep down, we probably 




We would like to recognize everyone who has contributed to the smooth running of the school — from teach- 
ing staff to admnistrators, medical and office personnel and maintenance, catering and housekeeping staff. It 
takes a large number of people to make a school like Shawnigan successful. We tried to provide several oppor- 
tunities for photos and we are sorry if you do not find your photo on these pages. We realize that, with the 
business of life here, not everyone can turn up for every photo-op. On behalf of the student body, the Yearbook 
staff would like to say a big thankyou to everyone who works here.

It is my great pleasure to have this opportunity to contribute to a publication that each year engenders great excite- 
ment and emotion as it tries to give a flavour of the rich concoction of moments that go to make up the Shawnigan 
experience. As I try to get used to my new role, which has taken me away, more than I wanted it to, from the 
multitude of daily interactions that are the fabric of life at Shawnigan, I realize that I am increasingly concerned with 
the future, and the securing of that bright future that we all want for the school. Trying to provide the best boarding 
school education and experience available anywhere is a lofty goal, but that indeed is our aim. We will not achieve 
it without the combined efforts of many; we will fail without teamwork. The many fine facilities provide only the 
setting. The truly precious parts, the jewels, are the attitude and approach of the students and staff. Shawnigan will 
always be about people above all else. When we stop caring about the individual then it is time to close up shop and 
move on. However, we've no intention of moving anywhere other than continually forward. There is no destination, 
just a thoroughly fufilling journey.

Math — the subject everyone has to take. It is a breeze 

for some students and a pain for others. Whichever you 

are, you are sure to have been doing math for at least 

eight years or more. The fact remains that we all will use 

math to some extent during our lives. Fortunately today, 

although much of the learning is just like it was 100 years 

ago, we have some aids and methods to make things easier 

and more fun. Junior Math uses algebra tiles, similar to 

lego, to help develop skills; and the introduction of the 

graphing calculator in Senior grades has changed how 

students do their learning. It is rumored that Howie D. 

even brought Toby Felix to help in class one day and 

Jamie Housser thought that jumping out the window was 

a good way out. Perhaps it could be rabbits next to help 

with multiplication.

A customer's view of the "new" English 9 

This year most of the Grade 9 students have enjoyed the new system of having three teachers in the year rather than just 
one. One student (not me!) said that it was good because you can soon get rid of a teacher you don't like -just joking , 
because all the teachers are really, really great and will probably give me an "A" when they read this! Mr. Deane is the 
Dean of Shakespeare and teaches at least two plays to a section. The Merchant of Venice is a favourite. Mr. Detchon 
teaches Short Story and Poetry and this is a popular section that incorporates the use of the Internet as well as reading 
and writing. Those with hearty appetites like Ms. Bell's section on writing skills and the Novel. Read five novels and 
you get a pizza! Maybe it will be difficult for us to get used to just one teacher in Grade 10.

What's New in Languages 


Language is always in a state of flux and the same can be 
said of the teaching of language. Methods change and we 
try to adapt to meet these changes. The newest addition to 
the department is a state-of-the-art media system which 
functions, among many other things, as a language lab.This 
has proved to be more of a challenge to the teachers than 
the students and we are still feeling our way. There is no 
doubt, however, that it opens up a lot of exciting possibili- 
ties. Meanwhile, the more traditional, tried-and-true teach- 
ing continues and we hope that the combination will lead 
to the development of some good young linguists. In this 
world of ever-shrinking borders and world travel, it is even 
more important to understand other people's cultures and 
to have an appreciation of other languages.

It is always difficult to write about socials in a few words because the subject covers so many different facets. The 
curriculum ranges from general social studies in the Junior Grades to high-level Senior courses such as AP European 
History and Geography 12. Opinions on socials studies may vary, but lots of students had success in learning and 
having fun at the same time. It is a diffucult task for teachers, but the socials studies staff this year proved that it can be 
done without too much stress. Each student managed to learn something and quite a few managed to enjoy themselves 
with the curriculum this year.

Electives give the students a choice of classes, all the way 
from band to art to stage-craft. They provide all the lowly 
juniors with a chance to see what they want to do when 
they become seniors. Each elective is a way for students 
to express themselves and have a choice in what they want 
to do, instead of the normal subjects. This teaches them to 
delve into the world of arts and explore their talents, in- 
cluding music, stage, woodworking and band. It's a relief 
for students to have the freedom to choose what they want 
to do and to have fun during the classes that they want to 
be in.

From human anatomy to stars, science at Shawnigan Lake School gets better every year. With the new Shaw centre, 
students can explore further into the world of science than ever before. The subject is great in demand from universities 
and opens new doors to many careers. The salmon hatchery program has been a success, as usual, and is proud of its 
dedication to Mr. Mark Hobson, a former teacher, who formed the program about 15 years ago. Another great trip to 
Bamfield with Biology 1 1 happened in March, while the planning for the Grade 8 "boat trip" starting in Bamfield, is 
still in progress.The school continues to take part in the 'Globe' program, a website in which data such as temperature 
and rainfall is entered and compared to other countries. We are one of the major contributors from Vancouver Island.

Grade 8 Perspective 

For the Grade 8's, Ski Week was, of course, a whole 
new thing and we found it a great way to boost moral in 
the middle of the year! A lot of us got a real taste for 
the Ski Week spirit. I don't know one person who didn't 
have fun. The best part for me was when I was 
snowboarding down a black run, really motoring, when 
I came around a corner and nearly hit Mr. Robertson 
who was snowshoeing up the hill with a dog! My part- 
ner, Patrick Mitchell found this pretty funny. The Jun- 
iors found the accommodation in the Lodge very 
comfortabe and we really appreciated our stay at the 
Resort. Most of us liked the food that was made for us, 
but we were sometimes just too tired to go to all meals. 
The evening activities kept us pretty busy and most of 
them were fun. Ski Week was a very good way to start 
2001 and it is definitely something to look forward to 
next year.

Go, go, go Joseph! And in April, the show will go on at Cowichan Theatre, under the direction of the talented 
Ms. Sue Newns and with the musical expertise of Mr. Stephen Shields. Unfortunately, since our book has to go 
to print in early April, we can only give you a preview of what is to come. However, if past years are a guide, this 
show will be another great success and a culmination of many hours of hard work by students and staff alike. The 
choice of Joseph provides quite a contrast to the last two years' selections ("The King and I" and "Fiddler on the 
Roof) and showcases the talents of Lani El-Guebaly as the narrator and Jesse MacCallum as Joseph. Joe 
Luckhurst was chosen to play all three roles of Pharaoh, Potiphar and Jacob. A production like this requires 
endless hours of preparation and practice, not only on the part of the actors but also from the stage crew, make- 
up artists and set-designers. On behalf of all the Shawnigan community, we would like to say thankyou to every- 
one involved for your effort in providing us with what will surely be several excellent evenings of entertain-

The Year of Snake, 200 1 , symbolizes shrewd dealings, planning, and searching for an- 
swers. In celebrating this arrival of this "shrewdly" planned year, the students went to the 
Don Mee Restaurant in Victoria on the 28th of January. There was an enormous amount 
of food served almost every ten minutes. After our delicious dinner, we went to the Gladiola 
Restaurant to continue with a karaoke session. Mimi Lee, Eric Cheng, Melvin Wong, 
Tammy Shiah, Daphne Fang, Erin Bosenberg, Jason Kujath, Jesse MaCallum and Jen 
Vane were the karaoke kings and queens for the night. Finally, we had to leave around 
9:30pm to head back. The night was amazingly successful, and owes a lot to Mr. Hyde- 
Lay, Alex Chang and Ted Huang for organizing the whole event. A special thanks to all 
the staff and students who made the night so special and remarkable.

Every year in the month of February, over 12 000 high school and college students converge on the 
little town of Moscow, Idaho for one of the largest competitive jazz festivals in North America. Now 
in its 34th year, the Lionel Hampton Jazz Festival consists of four days of instrumental and vocal jazz 
competition, as well as concerts and workshops featuring some of the finest professional jazz players 
in the world, all taking place on the University of Idaho Campus. This year, two groups from the 
school took part in the festival. The Senior Jazz Band, made up of students from Grades 10 to 12 
played extremely well and received very positive feedback from the adjudicators. Competition was 
very heavy (3 1 bands) and, unfortunately the group did not place in the top three. The Senior Jazz 
Combo put on a great performance and managed to place third overall in their division. This came as 
a pleasant surprise to everyone, but most of all to me, who failed to turn up at the awards ceremony to 
pick up the trophy (oops!). All students and staff had a great time and learned a lot about jazz. We 
look forward to returning to the festival in the future.

Spirit Week was an exciting change of routine 
for the school to take part in. With the help of 
some enthusiastic Grade 12's, the week was 
started off with a fashion show to display the 
many different themes for the week. The first 
day was Hawaiian day. The entire school was 
decked out in colourful Hawaiian leis and 
bright shirts. We then had twin Tuesday, where 
we could spend the day dressed exactly the 
same as a friend. This was followed by dress 
up day, where we showed off our best, and 
dress down day, which gave us a chance to 
wear casual clothes. The boys, or "girls", 
seemed to enjoy the cross-dressing dinner and 
all showed up in their nicest outfits! Some of 
the highlights of the week included the grad 
polar bear swim, which consisted not only of 
watching all the grads jump into the lake, but 
also a raffle to throw Mr. Robertson into the 
lake; and a grad auction and grad slave day, 
which enabled a handful of lucky students to 
control certain grads for a day. The week cul- 
minated on the last day, when everyone sup- 
ported the Senior Boys' and Senior Girls' bas- 
ketball games in Black and Gold. The entire 
school showed great spirit and enthusiasm 
throughout the week.

The Grad class is made up of a great variety of people, each from his or her own 
world. But each different perspective has added up to another world, that of the 
Grad class. The grads have each found a niche in the world of Shawnigan, 
whether it be through musical gifts, artistic talents, academic abilities or athletic 
skills. Grade 12 is a difficult and demanding year, but it is also one full of 
enjoyment and memory-making. From the core of 26 grads who have been here 
since Grade 8, to those who arrived new this year, the class has continued to 
grow, not only in numbers but in strength. Each new year brought students who 
were scared, excited, willing or unwilling to be here. Through the years, a bond 
has been formed and our world has been created. We will each take a part of 
this life with us as we venture out into the world beyond Shawnigan.

myself. Serena you've been a brilliant roommate for the last four

the same way. It has definitely been a memorable five years. I 
never expected that leaving would make me so nervous and happy 
at the same time. But I am ready to explore the world on my own 
two feet. I would like to thank everyone who ever helped me 
along the way. I never could have done it without you! But I am 
most grateful to my wonderful parents and sister, who were al- 
ways there for me even when I didn't know it. I am in eternal debt 
to Holger; I cannot begin to express my gratitude and grateful-

I'll miss that. Five years of Ripley's. Five years of roommates, old 
boys graduating, new boys coming, some old boys never leaving 
(this means you Griff), and the Daves. Insanity. I'll never forget 
any of it, no matter how hard I try. But I loved every minute of it, 
and I'd never trade my time here for anything in the world. Oh,

My three years at Shawnigan were filled with memories, experi-

thank my parents for always believing in me and supporting me, 
even if I always was "the most expensive kid" ! I have you alone 
to thank for this incredible experience. To my roommates, always 
remember the pact, "if we go down, we go down together!". Thanks 
to Pixie, Tink, Cayley and Lisa for all the laughs. I'll miss you 
guys! Thanks to Anna for always complaining and making my 
life suddenly seem easier, you were a lot of fun to have around 
this year. And James, thanks for always listening and making me 
laugh, I couldn't have made it without you.

I can't possibly mention everyone deserving, so I've singled out 
a few in hopes that I've done my best to let those unmentioned 
know how appreciative I am for all they've done. Mrs. Stapff, you 
ol' softy: thanks for the talks, the duct tape, and everything that 
lay between. Ms. Newns: thanks for giving me an opportunity to 
unlock something I might have otherwise suppressed. To both 
Ben and Jerry: although I've never met either of you personally, 
your existence has added flavour to my years. Thanks to those 
who believed in me: you gave me strength. Thanks to those who 
didn't: you gave me ambition. Lastly, thanks to the vivacious girls 
of School House: your laughter will be missed.

with. I will take away with me more knowledge of life and its 
experiences than I could have obtained anywhere else. I am glad 
I got to know those of you who I did, and in one way or another 
you did something to make my time here that much better. Espe- 
cially to the guys in Lonsdale's, you are the greatest group of 
guys I know and you all have potential to do great things. Re-

to me. Also, with all my respect, "I'll never let the boys down,

in store. Shawnigan has become such a part of my life that it is

What at first seemed an enormous segment of my life dawning

here at Shawnigan goes far beyond what is taught in a classroom. 
Each joy, each tear, each struggle and each delight have added to 
my journey, making every step an unforgettable learning experi- 
ence. I would like to thank all of my teachers and coaches, from 
whom I have learned so much; my family, for their love and sup-

The lessons learned from my journey will be with me always.

grew, somewhat, and moved up the ranks, there was less shelter 
from the stormy weather. She faced many hardships, but she loved 
the time spent in this little bubble we call Shawnigan. I would like

sion is an integral part of the Grade 1 1 
French curriculum and provides the stu- 
dents a superb opportunity to improve 
their French oral skills. Although the 
weekend is very structured, it really de- 
mands only one thing: that French be the 
principle language of communication! 
Despite the challenges this posed, the 
students made a strong effort to do their 
part. The obvious rewards will be theirs 
alone. — Mr. D. Hyde-Lay 

In early April, Shawnigan Lake School welcomed eight students 
from Azabu High School in Tokyo. As visitors to our school, 
the Azabu students participated in classes, Fine Arts and Sports 
and experience what it was like to attend a boarding school in 
Canada. The eight lucky students from Shawnigan had the op- 
portunity to travel to Japan to spend a week as guests of Azabu 
and get a taste of life in the big city of Tokyo. The students, 
along with Mr. Candelaria and Mrs. Hall, were hosted royally 
and returned home having made many new friendships across 
the Pacific. Highlights of the trip included sightseeing in To- 
kyo, the shrines and temples of Kamakura and Nikko, the end- 
less variety of fabulous food, the generosity of our wonderful 
hosts and the amazing array of electronic gadgetry. We look 
forward to continuing this relationship with Azabu and offering 
the chance to more students from both schools in the future.

The Confirmation Class pictured with Mr. Detchon and the Bishop. 

This was a year of tremendous change in the Chapel. Due to the 
increased enrolment of the School space the Chapel had be- 
come limited. This past summer, thanks to the generosity of a 
donor, a major expansion was undertaken. This was no easy 
feat since there were five marriages during July and August. 
The last few touches were being put on when the students ar- 
rived in September. The architect and builder worked very 
closely together to preserve the integrity of the building and the 
results speak for themselves. It is virtually impossible to tell 
there has been an addition and now everyone is seated in com- 
fort in a building that serves as the centre of the spiritual life of 
the School. As well as regular weekly gatherings and chapel 
services a number of special services were held. In the fall 
term there were the Founder's Day, Remembrance Day and 
Christmas Carol Services. In the summer term we had Confir- 
mation/Baptism with the Bishop of British Columbia, The Rt. 
Rev. J. Barry Jenks. We were honoured to have The Bishop of 
Montreal, The Rt. Rev. Andrew Hutchison to lead us in worship 
and the term ended with the Graduation Service. It has been a 
busy year for the Chapel! — R ev , E. Detchon

The tennis season began in early April with an invitational 
tournament in Vancouver which was eventually rained out. 
Our hosts Crofton House / St. Georges treated us superbly 
by offering us exhibition matches in indoor facilities. Upon 
our return, Brentwood beat us handily in our first league 
match but we bounced back to defeat Francis Kelsey 
quite easily. At the end of April, the boys' squad travelled 
to the annual Nanaimo tournament where we enjoyed the 
generous Purtzki family hospitality. Matt Kunzweiler, 
Sheridan Candelaria and Marcus Purtzki earned victories 
and were excellent ambassadors for the school. In early 
May, the girls participated in a high-powered, effective 
clinic. Our latest victory came at the ISA championships, 
where we earned the final berth at the Provincials. Good 
luck to every-one and many thanks to Mr. Ken Morrow.

Tennis has once again proved to be a popular option for 
many juniors, as evidenced by the large contingent of en- 
thusiastic players. There is a substantial amount of poten- 
tial talent in Grades 8 and 9, which should ensure the con- 
tinued success of the program at this level. Both the girls 
and boys recently played exhibition matches against 
Brentwood — the teams were fairly evenly matched, re- 
sulting in good competition for all involved. The I.S.A. 
Tournament, which took place on the 1 2th of May, re- 
sulted in a first place finish, with some fine individual per- 
formances. Thanks should also go to several students who 
did an excellent job of organizing and score-keeping. Best 
wishes go to all the Grade 1 0's who will be moving up to 
play for the Seniors next season. — Mrs. L. Grass

Shawnigan's golf program consists of 30 students 
who are eager to take up this wonderful game. All 30 
students attend Cowichan golf course three times a 
week and on Saturdays,we go on a "little" 5k run 
tothe Jaeger House restaurant. Shawnigan also has a 
golf team, and on this there are 6 of the top 30 play- 
ers. This year the team consisted of Jeff Morton, Sean 
Scott, Sterling Hein, Jordan Dewjordan Lee and 
Mark Stephenson. Three out of the 5 are juniors, and 
to go out and play to the level of the seniors, I have 
to say we've put in a great effort. Next year I think 
we will be dominating other schools. Mr. Connelly, 
and Mr Fraser, were our coaches. I would realy like 
to thank them for all the hard work and effort they 
put into the golf program. I hope the rest of the sea- 
son is as successful as the start has been.

The sailing dock has had a full compliment of sailors at 
both ends of the season. Approximately thirty sailors are 
in the Spring Programme. Many of these are new to the 
sport, but, as of this writing, they have become very com- 
petent in the boats. For a variety of reasons, sailing this 
year was largely recreational. We weren't able to field a 
full team of racing sailors, nor was the racing schedule 
particlarly adaptable to our internal school schedule: none- 
theless, Mr. Dean and I were quite pleased with the en- 
thusiasm and development of our sailors! Given the ex- 
cellent weather we have enjoyed, there is no nicer way to 
spend an afternoon than out on the lake in a good wind 
and under sunny blue skies.

More than thirty boys turned out for the team this 
year and we were lucky enough to form two leagues, 
so that everybody got to play. Great improvements 
were made in individual skills, but the shortness of 
the season left little time to greatly improve team play. 
Most of the players are in Grades 8 and 9, so the 
future of the program looks bright. Anton Lecky was 
captain of the squad, and he has done a great job at 
practices and in games. All players are looking for-

As this write-up goes to press, we are off to a great 
start. Everyone is so enthusiastic about the opportu- 
nities to learn some skills and to share in some great 
outdoor adventures. There is just so much to see, 
and it's all right at our doorstep (our mammal lists 
from the introductory trip alone included harbour 
seals, porpoises, river otters, voles, mink and racoon). 
The Spring Outdoors program has had the pleasure 
of welcoming an old/new face to the instructional

his wonderful story-telling talents have benefited us

The Iron Women of Shawnigan Lake had an amaz- 
ing season. With Iritana Houston as captain and the 
valiant efforts of Mr. Felix as head coach and Mr. 
Hall and Mr. Cumming, the girls had fun learning. 
The Seniors travelled to Ridley College to compete 
in the ISA Nationals, where we came second over- 
all. We represented B.C. well, being known as the 
laid-back West Coasters playing high-class rugby. 
Our Juniors had their own team under Mr. Cumming 
as coach and the Grade 12's as mentors. We were 
introduced to basic skills and values of the game. 
We came together and worked hard to make it 
through the Islands and the Provincials which were 
both held on our own fields this year.

We learned so much and we owe it all to our coaches 
and to the support we gave to each other. The gradu- 
ating girls led and learned at the same time and we'll 
miss them next year. We learned the value of re- 
spect for our teammates, the referee, for the oppos- 
ing team and for the ball. If we had no respect for 
these four things, then we couldn't and wouldn't play 
the game. Mr. Felix made sure of that. The Juniors 
might say "Don't stop, never give up..." but we don't 
know the rest of the song. We look forward to an- 
other year. Good Luck to Mr. Cumming, the gradu- 
ating players and to Mr.Felix. Thanks guys.'SLS

Picture yourself in a locker room with 15 guys sitting around you, 
chests heaving, blood coursing through your veins and one thought 
in common "you are going out on the field to win." A few memories 
I have from being at this school are coming in third, two years in a 
row, at the B.C. sevens and beating Brentwood in front of our school. 
It is an experience that needs to be felt rather than described. Hear- 
ing the roar of your peers, and knowing that you represent the best 
the school has to offer, lends you strength as you step onto the field. 
The feeling the 1st XV have every game of placing that 100% cotton 
black and gold jersey, leaves us feeling proud of being selected to 
represent Shawnigan Lake School. The 1st XV would like to thank 
Mr. Patel and Mr. Samuel for putting in a huge effort and the school 
for supporting us every step of the way. I would like to thank every 
1st XV player for making my last year at Shawnigan unforgettable. 
To the Grade 1 2's who have played on the 1 st XV, you have been 
there when we needed you the most and have kept the spirit of the 
team high. Strength and Honour to you all.

What a shame it has to be such a short season! ! All the 
boys who played for the 2nd XV this season have shown 
us, the coaches, what playing school boy rugby is all about. 
They have shown tremendous heart and passion for the 
game all year, and the skill level was maintained through- 
out. It is fitting that a few of the boys made the step up to 
the 1 st XV at various times. Quite often we would have to 
play against 1 st XV's from other schools who did not have 
a 2nd team. So it was nice that the two actual 2nd XV 
games we played both ended in hard fought wins, against 
Vanier and our last game of the season against Brentwood. 
Well done to all the boys who played, thanks to Ben Wills 
for his captaincy efforts. All looks well for next year.

Shawnigan crews are making a splash! We began the 
season in early April with the "overall winner" title at 
the Maple Bay Regatta: an excellent way to start things 
off. Two weeks later at the Brentwood Regatta our 
crews yet again distinguished themselves by finishing 
on top of the sculling competition and in fourth place 
overall. The season continued with our own Shawnigan 
Regatta. This was a very successful regatta for 
Shawnigan rowers, especially the boys, who finished 
first in their category. Overall, Shawnigan placed an 
excellent third. Many crews went on to compete suc- 
cessfully in the nationals in St Catherines. This has 
been a tremendous year for the program. Congratula- 
tions to all athletes and coaches for your commitment 
to the pursuit of excellence.
